The issue of better access to digital goods and knocking down barriers to the development of digitalisation and innovative services has long been discussed by European experts. Europe has a potential to specialise in digital solutions on a global scale, however, everyone agrees that it is not fully exploited. The main barrier is the fragmentation of markets, and lack of uniform regulations and procedures. A new EU initiative supporting the digitalisation of industry: Digital Innovation Hubs is there to remedy.
The DIH centres are hubs of complex services, where businesses, and especially SMEs and start-ups, can improve their competences connected to streamlining production processes, products, and services by implementing digital technologies.
The goal of S3HubsinCE project is to build competences of regional DIHs in Central and Eastern Europe by exchanging experience and good practices between project partners. The competences are built in the following technology areas:
RIS3 (Regional Innovation Strategy) are national or regional innovation strategies which set priorities in order to build competitive advantage by developing and matching research and innovation strength to business and market needs. This is synonymous with the term Smart Specialisation Strategies (S3).
DIHs (Digital Innovation Hubs) are ecosystems that consist of SMEs, large industries, start-ups, researchers, accelerators, and investors. They aim to create the best conditions for long-term business success for all involved.
The CERIS Navigation Crews are strategic task forces, made up of relevant stakeholders & experts aligned with EU working groups, based around the CE RIS3 Technology Priority Areas (TPAs), which generate a transnationally integrated network of innovative actors who will strengthen regional innovation ecosystems through enhanced knowledge exchange and joint-planning of concrete, market-focused, bottom-up RIS3 actions.
During these demanding and unpredictable times, Partners of the S3HubsinCE project will meet online. This virtual meeting will allow Partners to discuss the workflow of WP1, WP2, the Navigation Crew’s reports, the functionalities and role of Digital Integration Toolkit and the next activities. The Project Partners will talk about how to develop the Navigation Crew’s common strategy by defining joint cooperation and concrete mobility and pilot actions. The joint-strategy will be a model for value-creation which is spread by each navigation crew and brought to life in a common narrative about enhancing support efforts for RIS3 Excellence Target Groups in Central Europe.
